Ascot United 2-6 Highworth Town

Eight out of eight!

Another sunny afternoon saw the Worthians take up the challenge of making it eight wins out of eight in the league at the Racecourse Ground, Ascot.

The early period of the game was fairly even and Ascot may have scored from a corner, but the Worthians were creating chances too and despite some solid defending, goals were inevitable.

The first came after 22 minutes when Dan Drewett angled a cross into the box and Keiron Gleed allowed the ball to drop over his shoulder before volleying it into the back of the net for the opener.

Excellent interplay between Ryan O’Hara, Callum Parsons and Keiron Gleed resulted in the ball being laid back into the path of Wayne Turk, whose instant shot took a slight deflection to wrong-foot keeper, Lee Allen and nestle in the back of the net after half an hour. Despite creating more chances, the half-time score-line remained at 2-0.

From the start of the second period, the Worthians were on the attack and Lee Allen made an excellent save from Aysa Corrick’s run and shot. However, he had no chance from the resulting corner when a short ball from Callum Parsons found Nick Stanley on the edge of the penalty box who curled the ball into the far left-hand corner of the net for Highworth’s third.

The Worthians could have had a fourth when a good ball in from Aysa Corrick on the right flank found Ryan O’Hara at the far post but the header bounced off the crossbar. However, another attack down the left flank saw Keiron Gleed round the Ascot defence and pull the ball back for Callum Parsons to blast into the roof of the net.

Ascot then took advantage of a rare Worthian defensive error as Conor Henry sidestepped a static backline and lifted the ball over the advancing Garry Aulsberry for a well-taken goal.

However, the Worthians were on the attack once more and a header from Tom Cole was guided towards the goal by Ross Adams and cleared off the line but Aysa Corrick latched onto the loose ball and fed it into Keiron Gleed to smash into the far corner of the net.

As the game drew to a close, Aysa Corrick fed the ball out to Aaron Ferris on the left and the tricky winger rounded his man and delivered a short ball into the danger area for Keiron Gleed to slide home for his well deserved hat-trick.

In the dying moments, Ascot’s Jonny Denton delivered a fine cross-field ball to James Goodey who unleashed a tremendous shot to hit the back of the net for the final score of the afternoon.

The boys played with confidence, skill and application for a comprehensive victory over a tired and jaded looking Ascot United who now find themselves at the foot of the table ahead of Burnham on goal difference.
